North Leeds 8-15 Golf League
A golf league for 8-15 handicap golfers.
We fill the gap between Rabbits and Nett team golfers.
Now in our second season we are keen to expand on last year’s success. The Garforth GC 8-15 section won promotion to this year’s 1st division (Please see fixtures below).
What does the 8-15 league involve?
We run a league competition where matches are 8 man team playing 4bbb match play with 2 points for a win 1 for a half for the individual pairs. There is a team bonus point for a home win two for an away win and one for a team drawing away from home. We run a pairs competition through the season where courtesy is given to the visiting players. This year 64 pairs entered the competition. The final being played on the Presentation end of season event.
We run an individual championship at one of the league clubs. Last year this attracted over 60 players on a Sunday afternoon.
We further run a team knock out competition. This may mean a further home team fixture the semis are played at neutral venue usually at one two of the semi finalist courses.
What are we about what is the aim of the league?
Our intent is to play golf competitively but friendly.
The ideal is that you do all that is possible to assist your opponent then whup them nicely!
Individual championship and Presentation Day event are held at one of our league clubs in order to keep the revenue generated within the league. We run a raffle and this together with the sponsorship covers any costs generated.
We are not for profit but for the players.
When are the matches played?
The beauty of the league is that we are flexible all matches have to be played during the week. They generally tee off at 4.30 on a Wednesday. However, it is for the home team to stipulate the evening. e.g. Scarcroft have a club comp on a Wednesday so play all their home games on a Thursday. This year there are matches on Tuesday and one on a Thursday. The reason for this is so that we don't clash with Scratch teams Nett teams and Rabbits. The idea is for the Section captains to discuss if there are any issues and come to an agreed date.
